A fantastic eight-part podcast series called Missing has just concluded and it’s a brilliant look at the psychology and forensic science of missing people.
It’s been put together by the novelist Tim Weaver who is renowned for his crime thrillers that feature missing persons investigator David Raker.
He uses the series to investigate the phenomenon of missing people and the result is a wonderfully engrossing, diverse documentary series that talks to everyone from forensic psychiatrists, to homicide investigators, to commercial companies that help you disappear without trace.
Missing people, by their absence, turn out to reveal a lot about the tension between social structures and individual behaviour in modern society. Highly recommended.
